Offaly underage camogie captains announced for 2019

Offaly underage camogie captains announced for 2019

The Offaly U16 and minor teams have announced their captains this week ahead of their respective championship campaigns.

The Offaly minor management team have selected Lusmagh's Amy Byrne as captain and Birr's Brooke Whelahan as vice-captain.

Byrne has played centre back for the Lusmagh/Drumcullen senior team since the tender age of 17 while Brooke lined out as the Offaly junior full back in the team that reached the All-Ireland semi-final last year.

At U16 level, Aine Currams from Kilcormac/Killoughey and Caoimhe Kinsella of Birr have been announced as joint captains.

Currams was a huge threat and influential player in the U16 'A' final last year while similar to that, Caoimhe Kinsella had a brilliant game between the posts in the same game.

The Offaly minor team begin the All Ireland Minor A Championship on February 23 against Antrim at home while the U16 team will begin their Leinster Championship campaign on the March 23 away to Dublin.
